Patriots signed WR Kenbrell Thompkins to the practice squad.
Thompkins caught 32 passes for 466 yards and four scores as an undrafted rookie for the Pats in 2013, but his development quickly stalled. He'll be a known quantity as a deep threat for the Pats, one who could get the call to the 53-man roster in relatively short order. Sep 6 - 2:40 PM

Raiders waived WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

The former Patriots standout undrafted rookie from 2013 caught just 4-of-11 targets this preseason for 27 scoreless yards. He also dropped two passes. The Raiders have a ton of No. 3/4 receivers behind Amari Cooper, and Thompkins is one of the odd ones out. Neither big nor fast, Thompkins is a possession-type.
Aug 31 - 7:17 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins caught one pass for two yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.

Waiver by the Patriots on October, the Raiders claimed Thompkins. He peaked as the No. 3 wideout behind James Jones and Andre Holmes, but was mostly a rotational sub. Thompkins is under contract for just $585,000 in 2015 if the new Raiders regime wishes to keep him on board. Expect a training camp battle with the likes of Brice Butler.

Kenbrell Thompkins caught five passes for 90 yards in the Raiders' Week 16 win over the Bills.

He saw a team-high seven targets. Thompkins' big gain was a 50-yard catch deep down the middle in Aaron Williams' coverage. He was tackled at the four-yard line, and James Jones secured a three-yard touchdown a couple plays later. Thompkins is the No. 3 receiver behind Jones and Andre Holmes, but the Raiders throw the ball a ton. Oakland will head to Denver for the Week 17 finale.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 08:05:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins secured 2-of-3 targets for 47 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to San Diego.

Pathetically, Thompkins led the Raiders in receiving on a day where the offense was putrid, as usual. Thompkins is a sub-package receiver in Oakland's offense, behind James Jones and Andre Holmes. He has no re-draft value.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 08:12:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins had one catch for two yards in Week 9.

He saw two targets. The Raiders' third receiver has no fantasy value.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 08:12:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins (personal) returned to practice Friday and is listed as probable for Week 9 at Seattle.

Thompkins has emerged as Oakland's No. 3 receiver behind Andre Holmes and James Jones. He will likely run a lot of routes at Richard Sherman on Sunday.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 04:02:00 PM

Raiders WR Kenbrell Thompkins is away from the team for personal reasons, and is uncertain for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Thompkins won't be a Week 9 fantasy option if he does suit up. Thompkins has four catches in three games as a Raider. All four came in Week 8.
Thu, Oct 30, 2014 04:50:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins secured 4-of-8 targets for 34 yards and rushed once for seven yards in the Raiders' Week 8 loss to Cleveland.

Thompkins was on the field frequently in this game as the Raiders used three-receiver sets consisting of him, Andre Holmes, and James Jones. It appears Thompkins has bypassed Denarius Moore for No. 3-wideout duties.

Former Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins has "turned some heads" at Raiders practice.

Claimed off waivers on Monday, Thompkins has already earned a litany of compliments from the Raiders' coaching staff. OC Greg Olson said Thompkins "has a tremendous work ethic," is an "intelligent player" and "looks like a polished receiver." Not bad for three days' work. It is difficult to take this news with anything but a grain of salt. We have seen glowing practice reports before from Thompkins, but they have rarely been harbingers of on-field success. Thompkins may climb the depth chart in Oakland, but is unlikely to come into any fantasy value this season.

Raiders claimed WR Kenbrell Thompkins off waivers from the Patriots.

The subject of endless preseason hype amongst Boston beat writers, 26-year-old Thompkins disappointed as a rookie and took a step back as a sophomore, falling behind Brian Tyms, Brandon LaFell, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, and Aaron Dobson on the Patriots' depth chart. He's just a scrap-heap pickup for the talent-less Raiders, who have the worst roster in football, bar none.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 04:13:00 PM

Patriots waived WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

With Dont'a Hightower and Jamie Collins both questionable, LB Ja'Gared Davis was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Thompkins has been a healthy scratch in two of the last three games and was behind Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola on the depth chart. The move could also open a spot on the active roster for Brian Tyms, who has until Monday to be activated.
Sat, Oct 4, 2014 05:12:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins is a healthy scratch for Week 4 against the Chiefs.

Thompkins and Aaron Dobson are both healthy scratches, leaving Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, and Brandon LaFell at receiver. Thompkins is off the fantasy map.
Mon, Sep 29, 2014 07:13:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins caught one pass for 16 yards in Week 3.

Thompkins was active over Aaron Dobson this week. He played X receiver in three-wide sets, with Brandon LaFell the preferred option opposite Julian Edelman on running downs. Thompkins was a healthy scratch last week and remains off the fantasy radar.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 05:39:00 PM

Patriots declared WR Kenbrell Thompkins, CB Alfonzo Dennard, DE Zach Moore, RB James White, LB Jamie Collins, C Ryan Wendell and DE Michael Buchanan inactive for Week 2 against the Vikings.

Thompkins had a horribly inefficient Week 1, and was replaced on the active roster by Aaron Dobson. White is a healthy scratch for the second straight week, and is now clearly behind Brandon Bolden on the Patriots' depth chart. Dennard was never listed on the injury report, but is reportedly dealing with a left-shoulder injury. Wendell (knee) and Buchanan (ankle) were both game-time decisions.
